Titans' Henry looks to build on postseason debut against Patriots

Titans' Henry looks to build on postseason debut against Patriots

He provides Brady with a comfort blanket and that big body presence in the middle of the field that is a nightmare for opposition defences. "We're hopeful to get that accomplished".

Now the entire Patriots team could come down with a bad case of food poisoning or the flu but this one is likely to be a rout that will end the Titans season after their Kansas City miracle last week.

And in Week 5, the Jacksonville Jaguars defense went into the Steel City and basically blew out the Steelers single-handedly by scoring two touchdowns on five Ben Roethlisberger interceptions - meaning that unit scored more TDs than the offense they were defending.

That's just a starker example of a defensive dissonance that's commonplace at Foxborough. After all, he was a member of the Patriots for a few years before becoming a Titan.

The Patriots give up some yards on defense - New England is ranked 29th in the National Football League in total defense, allowing 366.0 yards per game.

Things could particularly get tough if the Patriots come out firing early on offense, and Mariota is forced to respond. And question marks over several Pats receivers, plus Belichick's habit of going with the most unexpected option, make him a sneaky play to return with a bang. Just two of Tennessee's last eight opponents managed more than 100 rushing yards while the team held three other squads to less than 200 through the air. "So defensively, it's all about not giving up touchdowns". It's the fifth time in Patriots history they have been a double-digit home favourite in a postseason game.

"There's no doubt about it", Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards says, "you have a first ballot Hall of Fame quarterback that does an excellent job of going out and executing their game from week to week".

He is just another one that you have to be aware of where he's at. They do a lot of things. This is a different Titans defense than that one, of course, and it will fight.

The Patriots are simply more experienced and deeper in talent than the Titans and it'll show on the scoreboard at the end of the day.

It's always hard for a football team to make a trek to New England while trying to win a playoff game.

"We've seen in games where we haven't played the way we want to play throughout the game, but if we were able to play well in the red area, we kept giving ourselves a chance to win the game", said McCourty. "So we've got to take care of business and start winning games like this to get the respect that we desire".

All the numbers favor the Patriots extending their record of consecutive title games reached to seven.

Divisional round games continue on Sunday with the AFC North champion Pittsburgh Steelers (13-3), who like the Patriots and Eagles had a first-round bye, hosting AFC South victor Jacksonville Jaguars (11-6).

The Vegas betting line made the Patriots a 13½-point favorite. Only the Jaguars have a larger red-zone advantage in football.

Despite losing Julian Edelman in pre-season, the Patriots have boasted one of the best receiving corps in the NFL.

New England quarterback Tom Brady trains this week ahead of the match against Tennessee.

Britt last played in Tennessee in 2013.

To pull an upset, Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota must be at his best.

Take last weekend, for example, when Mariota threw a pass, had it blocked and had the awareness and athleticism to gather the loose ball in his hands and run it in for the score.
